Yeah, placing the PX100 drivers into the KSC75 housing. Initially, I was gonna ask to put them into the 35's housing, but I use my 35 daily, and didn't wanna gut them when there was a perfectly good pair of KSC75s laying around as a spare incase something happened to my 35. So now, if/when wje gets it to work, I'll be able to compare between the 35 and the Kossheiser KSCPX175. wink.gif

So AMD just announced their new line of graphic cards and... there's this one technology that is quite intriguing: TrueAudio.

 

Basically what it does is that it allows developers to program audio through the GPU. Extracting multi-channel cues and applying DSPs over it, HRTF is also a possibility without the need of OpenAL or something similar since it is all handled on the GPU's driver.

 

This also does mean that we could return to HRTF for PC games as developers don't have to worry about consumers having the proper soundcard and relying on Creative/Asus to provide proper driver support. The market for consumers having AMD GPUs are much, much higher than that of the soundcard market anyways.

 

It's a fancy moniker for AMD's take on virtual surround, but I'm all up for it if we can get some nice HRTF mixing going on in future games. The audio layer is AstoundSound, available as a plugin for wwise and fmod, so developers shouldn't face much issues in getting it to work.

Funny thing is, I've been thinking about GPU-processed audio ever since GPGPU designs started becoming a reality about six years ago. I mean, if they can trace rays of light, how about tracing waves of sound like Aureal did in the late 1990s?

 

However, if it's exclusive to ATI/AMD, that's going to be a problem. Vendor-specific graphics card tech rarely sees much adoption, like ATI's old TRUFORM tessellation tech back in the Radeon 8500 days. NVIDIA's PhysX is a strange exception, possibly because it can still run on the CPU, albeit inefficiently and at reduced detail.

AxelCloris,
Thank you for your posts, ze humor makes my day ^_^

Mad,
KSCPX175 biggrin.gif

Benben,
Shows promise, more options seem to be popping up, so companies are at least recognizing the demand even if nobody has produced a optimized product yet.

Testing the T90 I was surprised that even some older recordings and stuff that I never thought of being perfectly recorded can still sound better on the T90.  Like some soundtracks from the 90's and some 50's/60's jazz.  The T90 still extracts more detail from them that I didn't even think was there.  That makes me feel better about the HD800, knowing my music library can still work with it.  Now, if the recording is a hissy sibilant compressed sounding mess, than something like the T90 or HD800 isn't going to fix anything or due it any favors.

So are you planning on keeping the K712 and Q701 both or something?  I thought you would sell the Q701 and then get some angled pads for the K712.  I don't think it's worth owning both of them as they're too similar once you mess with the pads.

I'm still trying to suss them out and compare. Haven't even used the Q701 since getting the K712 though, trying to give myself adjustment time. Haven't had the chance to swap pads yet, or rebias my tube amp for my fav tube (been listening to my K712's straight out of my iPod and Recon3D USB, tbh). And theeeen, the MA900 just arrived yesterday, so I gotta give time to that. I probably will let one go, but I can afford to wait a bit (probably the sale will fund my first smartphone).

I'm glad you like the T90! But... kinda sad that you don't think you'll keep it, like it could be an end-game contender like you felt with the Q701. I mean it's good you enjoy it, but I get the sense you're just trying it on your way to summit-fi.

Thanks.


Am I awesome? Sorry but I don't think so. I just made a lot of use of the Google Translator. biggrin.gif  This what I'm writing here right now is, in much of, supported by it. Even so, thanks. I'm still not understanding whether that word was suitable. Whatever. It may be because both Portuguese and English make much use of Latin words. e.g. In Portuguese, we have the verb "manifestar". I think this is a cognate. Two languages ​​and the same word. It's funny, is not it? Once again, thank you so much for your reply. smily_headphones1.gif

One point that makes me look more likely to the Sony than the AKG is the fact that the former is much easier to drive. Furthermore, there is the price point. Do you think it's a good idea to use the same headset for PC and console? If so, the MA900 has advantage because I intend to use it with a Sound Blaster Z series. As its amplification is enough good for the Sony but is not for AKG, and as it is not a good idea to use an external amp with SB-Z...

A more question: Do you or anyone know whether NFL Madden for PS3 will be avaiable for streaming for PS4?
I'm comparing the Sony and MA900 right now. Well, not this second, starting work. Stay tuned.
Manifest fit the context of your sentence well enough, I was just surprised because it is the kind of word that people rarely use in conversation.

SoundBlaster Z will have enough power to drive the AKGs, and it's fine to hook up an external amp to it. No reason NOT to use the MA900 with both computer and console, I think it'll do fine. From my first impression of the headphones, the AKGs simply are better if you can afford them, but the MA900 doesn't embarrass itself and is pretty good for the price.

K 701

K 702

K 701 (8-bump)

Q 701

K 702 65th Anniversary Edition

K 712

What's next, the K 777 77th Anniversary Edition, 77 ohms with a new revolutionary 77 pm diaphragm for €777.77 and only 77 are made?

Oh hey.

 

Yay, another re-hashed product. :D

That would be absolutely hilarious if it was just another K 701 and people claim it sounds 1000 times better.

post #17032 of 26148

kinda looks like a K601.

It's a K812.

That's basically the idea.  I definitely like the T90 more than I was expecting too though.  It's an upgrade over the K712 for some genres like classical and jazz.  But I've got my eyes set on the HD800, and there's no room (or budget) for the T90 to stay around too.  The plan was for the T90 to hold me over in the meantime though.

I wouldn't be concerned.  That won't be out for a while and it's rumored to cost about as much as a flagship headphone.  It's a complete unknown at this point, unlike the K712 which is solid (and essentially replaces your Q701 once you decide to sell it and optionally get angled pads ;))

The K1000 isn't legitimate enough for you?

My bad. NEW flagship to compete with what's been out in the recent years.
